VeraSun has lined up $250m (€193m) in financing for a pre-packaged bankruptcy, reported Reuters, which cited an article from the Wall Street Journal.
VeraSun Energy was not immediately available for comment.
Earlier, VeraSun said it had made bad bets on corn prices, a feedstock for ethanol. Since then, it has retained Morgan Stanley to evaluate so-called "strategic alternatives".
VeraSun stock traded on Friday at 48 cents on the New York Stock Exchange, down 15.79%.
